At our September Zoom Messy Church we heard one of the ‘Lost Sheep’ stories called ‘Echidnas on Everest’, which focuses on a letter from Saint Paul to the community in Colossae. In his letter, Paul talks about how the people can have good relationships with those they are in community with.

This seems pretty appropriate for lockdown, when we’re all stuck together in our homes and can become a bit ‘spiky’ with one another! Friends, brothers/sisters and parents can all annoy one another at times, but we need to stick together to work things out.

We all had fun making our spiky echidnas out of material we had to hand.
